I currently work at a supermarket on Saturdays 9-3 and get £4.05 per hour, which isnt too bad as im only 17. Although i'v applied for a Saturday job at some high street banks but haven't had any replies. :mad:

Recently I've done some work for my stepdad with his local business, and some of it has involved moving boxes, equipment, carrying things, driving things around etc. - I've built up some muscles in my arms in the process. :cool:

I'll be doing proper work experience soon though, either at the local uni or probably something else; I have gathered the places to ring etc.

Sweet F.A at the minute, but come next week - Data Entry for £5 an hour (and yes - even more time to squander on UKL ).

I'm a checkout girl at the local supermarket. Well-paid, reasonable hours, located near my house, staff discount...but the most mind-numbingly boring work ever!

are you one that smileys and makes small talk or pretends that the customer doesn't even exist wilst moping about slowly passing things over the checkout?

I am the guy at JD Sports who has to run up and down stairs into the stock room searching for ten minutes to find your damn trainers to find you actually want a bigger size. Just a little plea - tell us the EXACT size(s) you want

I am not bitter.

I've been offered a job with a starting salary of £10300pa as an admin assistant. It's only for part of a gap year so I can earn some money to do stuff I've always wanted to do (like a tour of European theme parks ).

Is this any good?

no, I do smile. It makes the time go a bit quicker. We are told never to start a conversation though, always wait for the customer to speak to you or they might get annoyed! It's true that if I do say anything , I sometimes get a rather shocked "it speaks!" type look.
